Cincinnati Bell Announces Gigabit Internet Service

  • Cincinnati Bell
CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bell, a provider of integrated communications solutions, including local and long distance voice, data, high-speed Internet, entertainment, and wireless services in Greater Cincinnati and Dayton, announced that the company will be offering Fioptics Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) to its consumer customers on September 8.

“The company has a unique opportunity to give Cincinnati consumers the capability to upgrade speeds to meet their ever-changing technology needs and do so at competitive prices,” said President and CEO Ted Torbeck Torbeck. "Cincinnati Bell’s Fioptics Gigabit Internet speed is up to 100 times faster than normal broadband Internet."

Cincinnati Bell began offering gigabit Internet service to small businesses earlier this summer. Torbeck noted that The Brandery, the small business accelerator located in Over-the-Rhine, was the first small business to receive Internet speeds up to 1 Gbps from Cincinnati Bell.

Light Up Cincinnati Initiative
Torbeck’s gigabit Internet service announcement is part of an overall program from the company to “Light Up Cincinnati.” Light Up Cincinnati is an initiative designed to provide Cincinnati residents and businesses with faster, more reliable and accessible services that will enable the city to grow, learn and connect with one another like never before.

Torbeck also announced that as part of the Light Up Cincinnati initiative, the company plans to continue offering free Wi-Fi hotspots at key Cincinnati locations and in conjunction with community events. The company will have several Wi-Fi hotspots available during the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Fireworks on Labor Day weekend and had previously set up free hotspots at the Bunbury and Buckle Up music festivals.

“Cincinnati Bell is really focused on connecting and bringing folks together in a powerful way,” Torbeck said. “Our company is transforming from a traditional phone company to a technology company designed to connect people where they live, work and play.”
